LENNOX ROBINSON I DEDICATE this book to you because I have seen your admirable little play Crabbed Youth and Age, and would greet the future. My friends and I loved symbols, popular beliefs, and old scraps of verse that made Ireland romantic to herself, but the new Ireland, overwhelmed by responsibility, begins to long for psychological truth. You have been set free from your work at our Abbey Theatre, which you have managed so skilfully for many years, that you may create another satirical masterpiece.
W. B. YEATS.
